Here at the Nursery, a new bird area is under construction. Many Gossetts' staff members are avid birders (wild birds as well as…uh, well, domestic fowl. See chicken event above) This season we are featuring Droll Yankee feeders--Yankee Flipper anyone? If you haven't seen the video of squirrels being (very humanely!) whirled off the "Flipper", then you're in for a treat! Humans definitely think it's hilarious, and I think many birds must be chuckling into their wings too from a branch or two above. We're also featuring Audubon feeders and hummingbird feeders and supplies. In the works is a bulk birdseed station. Customers will be able to scoop specialty seed by the pound. Coming soon, we hope. And by the way, JohnnyCake Farms, a staple vendor at Gossetts' Saturday and Sunday Farmers' Market, has homemade suet that they'll custom carve off the block for you!
Lisa Miller's Cottage Antiques business has relocated just around the corner to a charming antique blacksmith's shop next to the Horse and Hound Pub on Spring Street. We want Gossetts' customers to be sure to visit her new shop; you'll fall in love and, as always, find the perfect gift. Our Gossett team will miss her terribly, but we celebrate her incredible vision--both her great 'eye' for wonderful items and her view of an exciting future in her gorgeous new digs.
New garden classes, a new Nursery showroom and new products are all coming your way this growing season. Keep an eye here for more details as we share our vision with you. We can't wait to get our hands dirty, to get back to the soft earth and we bet you are feeling the same way. So stay tuned, great stuff is about to happen here at Gossett Nursery. To give you just a little sneak peak of what is happening this 2014 growing season, take a look at the photos below and check back soon for more details.
